Having a backyard pizza oven can give cooking a whole new meaning— you’ll never want to get an eight-slice pie delivered in a cardboard box again! A pizza oven has so much mass and insulation in its thick walls that it stays hot for a long time, and you still achieve high quality pizza with crispy crust and oozy bubbling cheese. Check out these best outdoor pizza ovens.
Alfa Allegro FXALLE-LGIA
A freestanding wood-fired pizza oven, the Alfa Allegro is hand-crafted in Italy, nodding to Old World methods, while combining first-in-class innovation. The high, arched shape of the dome allows the heat to remain trapped and cook food evenly while the built-in thermometer allows you to monitor internal temperatures– and providing a classic look! Alfa also installed a refractory cement cooking floor to aid in the baking process, and ceramic fiber insulation traps heat within the oven even as you use it. With these design elements in mind, you can be confident your Alfa pizza oven will see you through every cook session.

Forno Venetzia Pronto 500
The Pronto 500 is a 33-inch outdoor wood-fired pizza oven. Traditional wood-fired ovens like this one rely on firewood as their fuel source and can reach very high temperatures. Forno Pronto 500 conveniently comes with a storage cabinet, spacious shelves for your wood, and four caster wheels for portability. This unit will cook a 10″ pizza in about 2 minutes and a 14″ pizza in about 5 minutes at the same time on its 24-inch-by-20-inch cooking surface. Due to its size, the Forno Pronto makes a great choice for smaller outdoor areas.
Alfa Cupolino V60
The Cupolino 60 is a two-piece refractory brick oven that can be built-in to match your outdoor patio. The food is specifically placed next to the fire which gives it the flavor and aroma of wood. With no curing needed, you can cook anything in your Alfa pizza oven that you would normally cook in your kitchen oven including roasts, vegetables, potatoes, and desserts! Just keep in mind that it must be installed with a flue pipe for proper ventilation, and this unit must be inserted into a brick or stone masoned oven.
